October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. When a family member is abused, it can have a long-term damaging affect on the victim and leave a mark on family, friends and the community at large. Our society must work to prevent domestic violence and help create a loving and stable environment for our families. Any violence taking place within a family or intimate relationship is domestic violence. It includes abuse of spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends, children, and elderly people. Domestic violence cuts across all socio-economic, ethnic, racial, religious and age groups. If you would like additional information on domestic violence, please contact the safe place and rape crisis center in your community or the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence at303-839-1852; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
